'Fight Like Hell' - First DOOM Cinematic Trailer Released As Beta Looms

👤by Tim Harmer Comments 📅31.03.2016 20:15:07



With VR taking much of the limelight this past week DOOM's Closed Multiplayer Beta, which is due to begin tonight at 10pm ET/2am GMT, has been flying under the radar. Thank goodness Bethesda and id Software saw fit to kick our collective backsides with a brand new trailer for the game, directed by one of the visionaries behind Oblivion and TRON Legacy: Joe Kosinski.



Earlier their minimum and recommended specs for the DOOM Beta were also revealed:

Minimum Spec (720p)

Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 (64-bit versions only)
Intel Core i5-2400 or better / AMD FX-8320 or better
8 GB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 (2GB) or better / AMD Radeon HD 7870 (2GB) or better
Up to 22GB HDD space
Steam account
Broadband internet connection

*Please note that the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti, and mobile GPUs are not supported for the DOOM Beta. Please check back later for minimum or recommended system specs for the final game

Recommended Spec (1080p)

Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 (64-bit versions only)
Intel Core i7-3770 or better / AMD FX-8350 or better
8GB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 (4GB) or better / AMD Radeon R9 290 (4GB) or better
Up to 22GB HDD space
Steam account
Broadband internet connection


It goes without saying that these requirements are stringent indeed, especially for resolutions of only 720p and 1080p. It's often the case that Beta candidates are a little less well optimised than final release product, necessitating a more powerful system than otherwise would be necessary, but id Software are also well known to push the technical limits of hardware with their games.

Unfortunately only those who picked up Wolfenstein: The New Order (digitally or in-store) on or before May 26th 2014 are eligible for the Closed MP Beta, and invites have begun to roll out.

DOOM is due for simultaneous release on May 13th for PC, PS4 and XBOX One.
